#thingswikfound #omarax is a by-product of hunting for phishing and other badness on the internet. Each day I scan over 2 million newly created domains from a wide range of TLDs, locating everything from 8XX tech support scams to Brand name phishing attempts.
Now I understand that scanning the internet for these things isn’t new in general, but I promise you that my approach is different (and at the very least an entertaining story).
